The Biolan

The Biolan

Biola’s yearbook — one of the oldest forms of student media on the campus — provides students experience in magazine-style feature writing, feature and documentary-style photojournalism and four-color page design in a context that gives student journalists insight to careers in magazine production and book publishing. Editors are chosen a year in advance, but section editors are selected in fall semesters to serve through the year.

Disney Internships

Biola’s campus, so near Anaheim, home of Disneyland, provides students many opportunities for internships that can provide networking for both public relations and journalism careers. Students accepted for Disney internships complete coursework in leadership development and experience with public management. Students can also build ties to professionals in media properties owned by Disney, such as ABC News.

Washington D.C. Journalism and PR Opportunities

The Fund for American Studies and various other D.C.-based study and internship opportunities have been a successful fit for Biola journalism and public relations students. These programs offer courses and internship opportunities that parallel elements of our majors. Many Biola graduates in journalism and PR have made successful career entry in D.C.
